    With a gridlock of stores up and down Michigan Avenue and State Street, Chicago shoppers want for nothing — except, maybe, a Uniqlo. Well, we hate to break it to you, but you shouldn't look for one any time too soon.

While their opinions differ slightly, everyone agrees that the Windy City is ready for Uniqlo — especially the brand's cozy coats and jackets. (Racked)
